Sporting CP vs Atalanta

, KO: 17:45 Oct 5, 2023, Estadio Jose Alvalade

Sporting CP host Atalanta in a UEFA Europa League Group D clash with both teams aiming to build on opening day wins. Sporting are looking imperious at the moment and should have the edge over the Italians who have found things difficult on their recent travels.

Sporting CP picked up a 2-1 victory at Sturm Graz in their opening Group D fixture in the Europa League. They showed great character to fight back from a goal down with efforts from Viktor Gyokeres and Ousmane Diomande earning them the win.

It has been a superb overall campaign for Sporting CP so far, as they are yet to taste defeat across all competitions. Ruben Amorim's men are setting the pace in the Primeira Liga and picked up a 3-2 victory at Farense last weekend.

Sporting CP have also maintained an impressive record at the Estadio Jose Alvalade, where they have won all four of their matches across all competitions. That run is driven by a solid defence that has kept three clean sheets in the last three matches in front of their fans.

Atalanta also picked up a win on match-day one as they triumphed 2-0 over Rakow Czestochowa. After being frustrated in the first half, they came to life after the break with goals from Charles De Ketelaere and Ederson earning them the win.

That win appears to have sparked up a run of good results for Atalanta, who have now claimed three wins and a draw from their last four matches across all competitions. That draw came last Saturday as Gian Piero Gasperini’s men were held 0-0 by Juventus in a Serie A fixture.

A slight blemish on Atalanta’s recent good form is that they have been a bit unconvincing on their recent travels. The Bergamo side have lost two of their last three away matches but did claim a 1-0 Serie A victory over Verona in their previous fixture on the road.

How the bookies view it

Sporting CP have the upper hand among the bookies with a home win priced at 5/4 by Paddy Power. A victory for Atalanta is valued at 21/10 by Unibet while a draw is set at odds of 5/2 by William Hill.
